Max's message never did send the next day. Nor did it for the next eleven years. I never did hear from him again, but I know he's happy because his dream came true. He made it as a musician and a great one too. I smiled and walked out of the theater in my hometown of LA. I had made it as an actor in the theater and as a part-time singer in a cafe.
I walked down the street to the nearest bar and sat down in a booth by myself. I didn't usually drink, but today was one of those days. I heard laughter and talking from the booth behind me. I smiled knowing other people were happy. I wasn't always the happiest person, I was quite lonely at twenty-eight. I had never had an actual boyfriend and was virtually friendless. I ordered a shot of whiskey and some cola. I dumped the whiskey into the soft drink and took a sip. I hadn't noticed the long haired man watching me. I looked over at him and he smiled sweetly. It was warm and inviting as he motioned me over. That's when I realized I still hadn't put my lip ring or nose ring back in. I motioned back for a second and put them in. I walked over to him and he smiled, "Hi there," he said sweetly.
"Hi," I replied as I sat down and got a better look at him. He was quite handsome. He looked to be about twenty-nine or maybe thirty. He had snake bites and a nose ring along with some gauges. Definitely my type of guy.
"What's going on, beautiful?" He asked flirtatiously. I felt my cheeks heat up, a sign that I was blushing.
"Oh you know just getting off work for the day," I said a flirty as I could. He smirked, obviously it worked.
"Wonderful! How bout you tell me you're name and I buy you dinner?" My eyes widened at his words. I was shocked, but you know he seemed nice so what could go wrong?
"Maxine. Maxine Parker," I replied. He gasped and stood up out of his seat. What had I said.
"Maxine? It's me Max!" He almost yelled in shock. I almost fainted right then and there. Could this really be my Max?
